POLL: Ban Super-Size Sodas at Movie Theaters?

An NYC proposal may take away oversized sugary drinks from movie theaters.

Super-size sodas at the movie theaters in New York City could soon be a thing of the past, according to an article from Boston.com

Mayor Bloomberg has proposed a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in the city’s movie theaters, in the hopes of combating obesity, the article said. 

With Danvers being the home to two movie theaters, and at the , we want to know: would you be opposed to a large cup soda ban if it came to Danvers?

Let us decide what we want to eat, drink, wear or anything else that I consider personal decisions. Keep the government, local or national out of our personal life choices.

Coca Cola sent us the following statement in regard to this proposal: "“The people of New York City are much smarter than the New York City Health Department believes. We are transparent with our consumers. They can see exactly how many calories are in every beverage we serve. We have prominently placed calorie counts on the front of our bottles and cans and in New York City, restaurants already post the calorie content of all their offerings and portion sizes -- including soft drinks. New Yorkers expect and deserve better than this. They can make their own choices about the beverages they purchase. We hope New Yorkers loudly voice their disapproval about this arbitrary mandate.”
